More than 24,000 people in Hull and Leicester have had information about

Training company A4e said the data was held on a personal computer of an 
employee which was stolen in "an opportunistic domestic burglary".

A4e said the laptop, that was taken on 19 June in London, did not

The company is examining how its data security procedures were breached

A4e delivers public services across a range of sectors, including 
employment and welfare, training and education and debt and legal 
advice.

The stolen laptop contained names, postcodes, dates of birth and any 
possible awards made by a court.
